this is the link to replacing your antenna. First go to settings, general and reset network settings. You could try backing up from your last restore in itunes first to see if that helps. Just be careful with removing the LCD cable and insulation as we see a lot of people posting on here after damaging that area and ending up with white screen of death. Read the guide several times so you are familiar with it first before attempting the repair. Good luck.

Does his happen to all WiFi routers? Try to check other WiFi hotspots to see how does your iPod Touch works.

Do you have case and if there is what type is it around the iPod Touch? The WiFi antenna is black spot on the back on the other side of the power button so make sure there is nothing metallic covering that area.

I'm using iOS 5.1.1 (which is the current version) with my iPod Touch 4G and I have no problems with WiFi connecting to my router which is about 5 meters away so I don't think downgrading would do anything to the WiFi connection.
